The Curriculum Committee reports to the Associate Dean for Professional Affairs and the faculty. The committee meets as needed but normally every two to four weeks. The committee manages an orderly and systematic review of curriculum structure, content and outcomes. This review includes assurances for coordination of course material, identification of content omission or unnecessary repetition, identification of outdated or unessential content, and recommendation of a reasonable course load for students.
The committee systematically reviews the curriculum at regular interval to determine the appropriateness of content-emphasis and proper sequencing to provide the optimal environment for learning. The committee is responsible for obtaining data on learning outcomes and student satisfaction with the curriculum. The committee collects and disseminates information to the faculty regarding successful methods of innovative teaching as a means of continuous improvement. The committee is responsible for assuring that outcome measures of learning are systematically applied as an additional means of continuous quality improvement.
The committee has authority from the faculty to consider problems presented by students only under limited circumstances. The committee has the authority to consider the concerns or problems presented by the students who are not on the committee only after the course master and departmental chair have considered the issues or problems first. Even then, the committee may act or respond to only those issues or problems that relate directly to curriculum structure, content and outcomes.
The committee is composed of a faculty member from each of the departments, a practicing pharmacist and a student from each of the first three professional degree classes plus a representative from the student council. Fourth year students are out on clerkships and, thus, may or may not be represented on the committee. Ex-officio members include the Associate Dean for Professional Affairs and the Assistant Dean for Curricular Affairs and Accreditation. The Chair is appointed by the Dean from the current pool of committee members.
